Someone made sure to shovel out the Boston Marathon finish line

Boston was hammered with 23.3 inches of snow during the Blizzard of 2015, the sixth-biggest snowstorm in that city’s history. Naturally, it’ll take some time for all the roads there to be completely cleared of snow, but there’s at least one patch that’s in good shape: The Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street.

Hillman says he took the photo from his room at the CharlesMark Hotel, and had started a #whoshoveledthefinishline Twitter hashtag search to find out the identity of the good Samaritan.

BostInno contacted the hotel to see if it was one of its employees, but they said it wasn’t.
